We are the EveryDay Carriers!

We here at the EDC Club are the side of the knife hobby who are the "Users." We are the EveryDay Carriers. Yes, we probably have one or two stuck back either due to sentimental reasons, or the knife was one of those- "just couldn't say no" when we first saw it and now it is a trophy knife in our possession, BUT, for the most part, we are users.

It's hard for us to imagine spending hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars on knives - then stashing them away and not putting them to task, like they were made for. We help knives fulfill their destiny! Yes, they get scratched, tips broken off, and lost, but sitting there collecting dust, all the while its screaming to be carried and used- not our knives.

Granted we may rotate our EDC's in and out based on what we are doing for the day, or our moods, and may even retire one every now and then, but use them we do and are proud of it!

Jack Carter I believe is another person. These knives come from Murray Carter at cartercutlery.com. He's a 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith trained in Japan. I also think he has a Master Bladesmith title in the US. Each knife is hand forged and he is now using an apprentice to make knives at a lower price under his training. The Muteki knives are the knives made by the apprentice. I also ordered a genuine Carter made neck knife to get the free kitchen knife. I have the neck knife and am still waiting on the kitchen knives. Mr. Carter makes knives of the same type in groups of the same type I'm told and should have mine in a week or so I hope.  Here's a picture of the original Carter neck knife.

I'm really loving this knife. The difference in the Muteki (apprentice) and the original Carter can be seen IMO in what you might see in a knife made by a very skilled knife maker and a knife made by a master bladesmith trained for many years under a Japanese bladesmith and many others who specialize in different types of knives, steel, etc. It's pretty interesting reading about Murray Carter's training experiences. I've gotten used to wearing a larger knife (3 3/8" blade) in a neck sheath. It's also the first fixed blade I've carried as an EDC knife. I'm going to get some thoughts together and write a review about these two Carter Cutlery knives. I'll emphasize I'm not a knife expert. I just know a little bit and not much at all about metalurgy.

Jack, Congrats!!!!!!!

I am waiting to see how this plays out.  

Will she like the Carter, will you be able to part with if she doesnt?  How does EDCing a fixed blade work out for you??

Oh yeah, the white steel on these knives gets VERY, VERY sharp and so far seems to have outstanding edge retention. Very comfortable to use also. That's about it for  a review so far. lol

I just got this Carter Cutlery Muteki (apprentice made) neck knife. I also ordered a belt sheath. I don't normally EDC a fixed blade but I've wanted a Carter knife for a LONG time. So far I really like it. It's there for the real hard cutting tasks. I also have what I call hard use folders but any folder no matter how strong isn't as strong as a fixed blade. What bothers me is now that I'm older and retired I don't do the work that would really put these knives to work. Here is the Muteki. These are made by his apprentice and are not as expensive but are strictly scrutinized by Mr. Carter.

I subscribe to the "knife tips" that come via email. In email #4 there was an offer that if you buy a Carter (not apprentice) neck knife he throws in a Kuro-uchi kitchen knife for free. It's a real Carter knife with a plain handle. Valued at $150 or more according to the offer. So, I ordered this knife (pic from web site).

I sold a couple of pocket knives I don't use much to help fund these guys. Also, if wife doesn't care for the kitchen knife I might (MIGHT) sell it also. It bugs me to have knives that don't get used. I usually trade or sell those to help with others. Anyway, I have the Muteki and the "real" Carter neck knife should be here in a day or two. I love the size of the fixed blades for EDC. Now I will decide if I like carrying a fixed blade for EDC. So far I like it. I really like the belt sheath. The knife is a bit large for a neck knife IMO for EDC. Now if I'm working around the house, fishing or something like that it's fine. But to qualify as EDC for me it means I can go anywhere (stores, Dr. appts, etc) with it. The large knife hanging around my neck may not be seen as appropriate. I truely don't care but I try to "go along" most of the time. Anyway, I have a new EDC knife. :) I may write a review later after I have time to get to know the knife.

We have a Group just for knife Reviews. We would love to have you do one in that Group. The Groups name is A Sharper Review. Check it out.

Can't wait for your assessment of the SOG Slimjim Tanto.  I have tested and wrote about this knife in the other blade configuration.  This is a great little knife.

Although I am not familiar with that model, I have owned a few SOG knives over the years and I never had any problem with, quality. Let us know what you think after you get it.
